Video: http://youtu.be/GLFJIfXAWs8?hd=1 Good morning!  Much of the day today will be dry and mild, with highs near 50º for many spots, even warmer south/west.  Breezy southerly winds gusting to 30mph this afternoon, with light showers developing after 5pm through the night as a cold front passes, but moisture will be very limited!  0.05" or less of rain expected.  No slick spot concerns tonight as moisture shuts off quickly during the pre-dawn hours and winds will dry the minimal amount of moisture that falls. Still watching a disturbance for Friday evening and night which is likely to bring a narrow band…

Video: http://youtu.be/hqvesVNo_V8?hd=1 Good morning everyone! Taking a look at the current radar as of 5:30am EST, another round of heavy rain is on its way that will impact the morning commute especially for the western and southern parts of the state. This continuous stream of moisture from the southwest coupled with a stout low-level jet will help to pump in additional rounds of heavy showers and storms into the afternoon and early evening, with some of these storms potentially becoming severe given the dynamics. Areas of dense fog can be noted this morning across the central and southern portions of…

We now include the Indy metro in 2-4" of snowfall, given slight south shifts in the data.  Still expecting localized 4-5" totals within the 2-4" band just northeast of Indy.  We'll bring the 1-2" through the northern half of Monroe county, then the totals taper off…

Indiana Video: http://youtu.be/DXkcSgbimCs?hd=1 Observed snowfall this weekend vs. our final forecast.  Overall it panned out very well.  There will always be spots that get more or less snow than expected, and the one area that got a bit more was far northern Illinois as the storm ticked north slightly.  Much of central Indiana was indeed in the 6-8" snowfall range. As we head into late tonight and Tuesday morning, a weak wave aloft may aid in the development of patchy areas of freezing drizzle in northwest Indiana and the northern half of Illinois. Our next system comes Thursday, which may…
